General description

Substance P (SP) is widely distributed throughout the central nervous system (CNS) and peripheral nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, primary sensory neurons and intrinsic nerve fibers associated with the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
Substance P (SP) is a 11 amino acid peptide. It is a member of tachykinins family, that includes neurokinin A, neurokinin B, neuropeptide K, neuropeptide Y and hemokinin-1 It is located on human chromosome 7q21.3.


synthetic Substance P (SP), conugated to KLH.


Anti-Substance P antibody has been used in immunostaining and immunohistochemistry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Substance P (SP) improves the multiplication and paracrine ability of stem cells acquired from adipose in vitro. It participates in the movement of several organ tracts, trigger glandular secretion and controls autonomic reflexes. It plays an important role in neuroimmune and systemic autoimmune/inflammatory conditions like multiple sclerosis (MS), rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and also in infections and cancer.
Substance P (SP) is a neurotransmitter or neuromodulator. SP mediates the process of neurogenic inflammation.

Analysis Note

The antiserum is evaluated for activity and specificity by dot blot immunoassay and RIA.
